COVID-19 LOCKDOWN :Advantages & Disadvantages| Lockdown 4.0 Guidelines



Lockdown 4.0 Guidelines

Due to the Corona Virus (COVID-19), the Government decided to Extend Lockdown in several states with some rules. Now it’s the fourth Phase of Lockdown that means its Called Lockdown 4.0. In this article, I mention a Few points about The Advantages & Disadvantages of this Lockdown.

5 Motivational Advantages of Lockdown-:

1. COVID-19 Virus Spread will Decreases

2. Lockdown reduces air pollution

3. Purification of Holy Rivers

4. Fall in Crime Rate, Fatalities on Roads

5. Quality Family Time, Self-constructive Growth

  1. COVID-19 Virus Spread will Decreases:

COVID-19 spreads mainly by droplets produced as a result of coughing or sneezing of a COVID-19 infected person. This can happen in two ways

  1. Direct close contact
  2. Indirect contact

Due to this Lockdown, Peoples Learns & Practice about Social Distancing which helps to reduce the spread of COVID-19 Virus. In Social Distancing many Points are arising like-:

a.) Avoid gatherings

b.) Maintain a safe distance of at least one Metre between you and other people when in public places

c.) Stay at home as much as possible

d.) Avoid physical contact like handshakes, hand-holding, or hugs.

2. Lockdown reduces air pollution:

These 5 cities –Ghaziabad, Delhi, Noida, Greater Noida, Gurugram have witnessed a drop of over 50 percent in their PM 2.5 concentration since March 24, when the nationwide lockdown was announced.

And if we are talking about the whole Nation then there were many Satellite Data which show the Reduction of air pollution every day.

China, Italy, US, Europe reported a good PM in their Air Quality Indexes.

3. Purification of Holy Rivers

India coronavirus lockdown ‘cleans up’ Ganges River. The Ganges is one India’s holiest and also most-polluted rivers. Millions live on its banks across several states. It’s widely considered as a lifeline for many Indians. But it has become severely polluted in the past few decades – industrial effluent is regularly emptied into the waters, as is waste from the millions of people who live alongside its banks. The government has spent millions of dollars to clean up the river, but with very little success.

4. Fall in Crime Rate, Fatalities on Roads

A 40% fall in murder cases in the period between March 25 and April 14 this year as opposed to the same period last year. Similarly, there has been a 70% fall in rape cases and a 100% fall in cases of violence against women and children. Naturally, since there are fewer vehicles on the road right now, accidents have come down too.

5. Quality Family Time, Self-constructive Growth

  • Spending more time with family.
  • A lot of time for self-introspection and self-improvement.
  • Time to learn something new or just stay still at home without doing anything watching TV shows, movies the whole day.
  • People will eat fresh home-cooked food

Something that modern-day families have been missing for quite some time. Again, highly subjective. The best one in my opinion. Learn a new skill, read that book which you couldn’t because of your busy schedule, focus on your health, cook, or even clean your room.

In this Lockdown, Our Minister of Information and Broadcasting “Prakash Javadekar” announced the best thing which is Retelecast of Ramayan on DD National & Retelecast of Mahabharat on DD National.

This Retelecast helps our new Young Generation to learn about Indian Mythology and its values, which is very necessary at this time.

5 Demotivation disadvantages of Lockdown-:

  1. Increment in Unemployment.

  2. Loss of Study and Research in India.

  3. A Larger Section Will Suffer From Poverty.

  4. Economical Crisis

  5. Poor Tax Collection

  1. Increment in Unemployment-:

India’s unemployment rate may have climbed to 23% as the economy lost jobs after a nationwide lockdown. The jobless rate was 23.4% for the week ended April 5 based on a sample size of 9,429 observations. These are very big variations and are subject to the usual sampling errors. It, therefore, may not be very wise to focus on the magnitude of those movements but on the certainty of the movements.
It is evident that there was a significant fall in employment and there is a simultaneous significant increase in unemployment in March 2020.

  1. Loss of Study and Research in India-:

With COVID-19 spreading to more regions, state governments are closing down schools, colleges, educational institutions as a precautionary measure against the disease. Many are conducting classes online. In the wake of this emergency situation, educational institutes around the globe are shifting their operations to online learning. Top educational institutions of India like Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT-D), Delhi University (DU), Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), Jamia Millia Islamia (JMI), Netaji Subhas University of Technology (NSIT), and more have stopped their offline operations ad have shifted to their teaching-learning procedure online.

  1. A Larger Section Will Suffer From Poverty-:

Like many industries that involve Human interaction like, Hotels, Resorts, Barbers, Massage parlors, destination weddings, Travel by Interstate Transport, etc. Roadside Dhabas and hotels will be affected many individuals involved in all these industries will certainly find it difficult to find jobs. Yes, there will be a marked increase in poverty. Due to this COVID-19 Outbreak, about 400 Million workers may sink into Poverty.

In India, with a share of almost 90% of People working in the informal Economy about 400 Million workers in the informal economy are at risk of falling deeper into poverty during the crisis.

  1. Economic Crisis:-

The economic impact of the 2019–20 coronavirus pandemic in India has been largely disruptive. The World Bank and credit rating agencies have downgraded India’s growth for fiscal year 2021 with the lowest figures India has seen in three decades since India’s economic liberalization in the 1990s. The Indian economy was expected to lose over 32,000 crore (US$4.5 billion) every day during the first 21-days of complete lockdown which was declared following the coronavirus outbreak. Under complete lockdown, less than a quarter of India’s $2.8 trillion economy was functional. Up to 53% of businesses in the country were projected to be significantly affected.

Supply chains have been put under stress with the lockdown restrictions in place; initially, there was a lack of clarity in streamlining what is an “essential” and what is not. Those in the informal sectors and daily wage groups are the most at risk. A large number of farmers around the country who grow perishables are also facing uncertainty. Various businesses such as hotels and airlines are cutting salaries and laying off employees.

Each Indian State Faces Economy Issue or we can say that we having a Major Loss in Our Economy. Every Sector is shut due to this COVID-19 OUTBREAK. The auto sector having Major losses due to Corona Pandemic.

To maintain our Economy growth again, the Indian Government taking some Tough Decision during this COVID-19 Pandemic this is

After that Government orders to reduce the salary of their Central & State Employees & Many more steps to grow our economy again.

  1. Poor Tax Collection

GST plays an important role in the growth of India’s GDP. Due to Lockdown and Covid-19 Outbreak, all things were shut so, there is No way to Collect GST Or SGST.
